Garena Free Fire is a battle royale game where players descend on the battlefront to survive till the end and conquer their opponents. Among the several modes available, ranked is considered quite challenging as users confront each other to acquire higher ranks and stand out from the crowd.
They should adapt survival gameplay with a passive approach to obtain more points. Among the multiple factors affecting individuals' on-field gameplay, Free Fire characters are significant. With fantastic abilities, a proper selection of characters can aid players tactically in winning tough rounds.
Disclaimer: Due to a government-assessed ban, players from India should avoid playing Free Fire. They should play the MAX variant instead.
